Webtoon announced that the Get Schooled series has been canceled and is now removed from Webtoon.
This decision angered Get Schooled followers. So Why did the webtoon cancel the ‘get Schooled’ series?
In the statement made on Get Schooled’s official account, they explained why they left Webtoon.
What is Webtoon?
First, it is useful to define webcomic. Webcomic is a term used for all comics and cartoons made to be published on the internet. They are usually drawn digitally.
Webtoon is the same as webcomic, but Koreans do not use the definition of webcomic for the webcomics they draw, and since their style in webcomics is not similar to their counterparts in other countries, all webcomics drawn by Koreans have begun to be called webtoons around the world. But the most appropriate definition for this type of comics is Korean webtoon (you will often see the expression Korean webtoon on English sites) because webtoon is not a term used only by Koreans like manhwa, it is often seen that its western counterparts (webcomics) are also called webtoon.
Differences and general features of webtoons from classic manhwa or manga
Webtoons are usually drawn in color. Some objects (usually money) can be colored, although some do not appear to be colored. Webtoons are drawn only to be published on the Internet, but this does not mean that they cannot be published. Popular webtoons are printed on coated paper in color as in the original. There is no such thing as a page in webtoons. Each section is composed of a single piece or only 3-4 pieces and is published and read as a vertical thin strip. But when printing, they are divided into pages. Some English sources also call manhwas published on the internet (Daum), such as The Breaker, as webtoons. But this is wrong. The biggest proof of this is that webtoon is a subsection of comic on the portals and such comics are not in the webtoon section. Webtoons are most easily read by scrolling up and down with the arrow keys on the keyboard or by scrolling down with the scroll bar in the middle of the mouse. Some webtoon artists can make some parts in gif style or even with sound. Since webtoons emerged with the development of technology, all the possibilities of technology are used when drawing some webtoons. Most webtoons have digital drawings and many different programs can be used while drawing them.
